IBAC Focuses on CORSIA Awareness and Education – Workshop and Event Participation Scheduled for 2018

Please can all BBGA Members note that there is a workshop at EBACE so members may wish to attend this one if they are going to be EBACE in May.

The IATA one-day CORSIA workshops are open to all operators, including business aviation operators, at no charge, but there are limited places for each session so pre-registration is encouraged and can be done by emailing corsia@iata.org.

MONTREAL – 8 January 2018 – The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has announced it is coordinating with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to participate in numerous workshops in 2018 as well as present at several business aviation events to educate the industry on the new Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), a global measure to address international aviation emissions agreed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). .

Kurt Edwards, Director General of IBAC commented, “It is important that international business aviation operators understand this new global carbon offsetting scheme and those that are not covered by exclusions need to take steps in 2018 to begin gathering data to fuel burn from international flights.” Edwards added, “CORSIA was developed by ICAO with significant aviation industry input, and we welcome this measure as part of a larger suite of measures, including air traffic management modernization, new technologies, and sustainable alternative fuels, to reduce emissions. We appreciate working with IATA to participate in several of their workshops and look forward to presenting details on CORSIA at several business aviation events this year.”

A full workshop schedule is available on the IBAC.org website at CORSIA Workshops.


IBAC will provide CORSIA presentations and workshops during the following business aviation events:

NBAA – Regional Forum, 24 January 2018 in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA

EBACE –  Workshop during annual event, 29-31 May 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland

CBAA – Workshop during annual event, 12-14 June 2018 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

‘Our BBGA membership gives us access to an unparalleled repository of knowledge on aviation regulations and practices. If BBGA’s own in-house experts can’t answer a query they know someone who can; right across all of the disciplines of certified general aviation and business aviation too.
BBGA’s ability to bring together all sectors of UK general and business aviation gives us enviable networking access.
Nobody has the ear of the regulator like BBGA and that’s two-way thing; BBGA is not just able to elicit answers from EASA, the CAA and DfT, its advice and recommendations are sought both nationally and supra-nationally too. That makes membership a vital way to influence upcoming policy.’
